The Hong Kong Cyclothon is back for its 2017 edition next month and is throwing out an invitation for pedal pushers from around the world to join its intense race and celebration that takes riders Tsim Sha Tsui East to Stonecutters Bridge, Ting Kau Bridge, Ma Wan and Eagle’s Nest Tunnel on October 8 between 5.30am and 6pm.



Hosted by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), the Cyclothon will gather some 5,000 local and international cyclists in a race of speed and endurance. The 50km and 30km rides, in particular, offer a rare opportunity for riders to pedal through the diverse cityscape. Streaking across three bridges, including Tsing Ma, is a breathtaking experience on the 50km ride and a “must-do” for cycling amateurs and professionals alike.

Top cyclists from around the world will take part in the first-ever UCI Class 1.1 road race organised in Hong Kong and experience the city’s enchanting appeal and applause from enthusiastic spectators and visitors. If cycling isn’t your thing, you can join the passionate crowd in front of Victoria Harbour instead and cheer on the pros.
